Unbound by Francisca Prieto

Old books are recycled and reconfigured into new landscapes via the use of origami techniques. The results are eerily beautiful.

Showing now, an exhibition of new work by Francisca Prieto at Jagged Art. Between Folds brings together many passions through the deconstruction of old books, including atlases from the 1800s that show long changed countries and places. Using origami techniques Francisca Prieto has created a new topography of intricate grid structures which means that the viewer is able to see many pages from each book at once, yet only glimpses are possible to read.

In Between Folds/Blue Catalogue she has reconfigured a rare copy of a furniture and hardware catalogue, so that only a few items that speak of its era are viewed, hidden amongst an intricate geometrical landscape.

Francisca Prieto was born in Chile but moved to London to do an MA at Central Saint Martins, from which she graduated in 2003. Unbound is open between Wedsnesday - Friday from 11am-6pm, and on Saturday between 11am-2pm at Jagged Art.
